A vaguely absurd epidemiological thriller filled with elaborately superfluous setups and shamelessly stale James Bond riffs.

Woo lays on his own particular high-octane stylishness so thick the results edge perilously toward self-parody.

Woo's hysterically hyper visuals and boytoy gimmickry can't camouflage the emptiness of the enterprise.

If the first movie was entertaining as sound, fury and movement, this one is more evolved, more confident, more sure-footed in the way it marries minimal character development to seamless action.
